Just a note--I don't think it should be necessary to change the
file ownerships for the entire directory structure, even in safe_mode.  
I've seen lots of PHP safe_mode installations where changing the ownership
of all of PmWiki's files was not necessary -- getting correct
ownerships of wiki.d/ (and uploads/) was sufficient.

But if I'm wrong about this, I'd like to get more details on it, and
(if possible) run some experiments with a web host where this appears 
to be required.  More information will make it easier for me to create
a simpler install (PmWikiPhilosophy #5).

I'm also very interested to know how PmWiki 2 works in different
safe_mode installation environments, if anyone can report on those for
